Merdeka Run to celebrate National Day
“It is our National Day and what better way to celebrate it if not with residents and people in the community,” Cheras MCA secretary Dr Jeffrey Goh said.
The 3.5km run passes through housing areas like Taman Segar, Bukit Segar, Taman Supreme, Taman Cheras, Desa Aman Flat, Desa Aman, Taman Mutiara Timur and Taman Gemilang.
The run is jointly organised with Taman Taynton Residents Association. The first 500 participants to sign up will be given a free T-shirt and a flag.
“It is a healthy activity for residents of all ages to participate in this fun run. They can also cycle, roller-blade or just walk the short route,” Goh said.
He said that 51 residents would also be chosen to carry the National Flag along the route this year, to mark the country’s 51st birthday.
Those interested can call 03-9133 2286 for details. Registration begins at 7am in front of the Cheras MCA office at Jalan Manis 1 in Taman Segar.
A light breakfast would be served before the run, followed by a short warm-up session conducted by Fitness First instructors.
